With its sleek, powerful geometric lines, Art Déco style (1919-1940) stands out thanks to its lively appeal. Born of the impetus driving French artists such as architects Henri Sauvage, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Roger-Henri Expert and Pierre Patout, designers André Véra, Louis Süe, André Mare and Jacques-Émile Ruhlmann, fashion designers Paul Poiret and Jean Patou and sculptors Martel, Janniot and Sarrabezolles, it is the product of a vision shared by various artistic spheres.
The exhibition has been set up as a suite of sequences on themes striving to illustrate what lies behind Art Déco’s international success and its influence in various forms of artistic expression.
